I am a singer-songwriter and licensed attorney based in the DC area. I have released one album, "Serial Love", as well as several singles, and have also written the soundtrack to the independent film "Portrait". Additionally, I was a guitarist for 10 years with the DC based band "The Players", who sold out venues such as the 9:30 club and The Howard Theater.
EDUCATION AND TEACHING
I graduated in 2010 with a Master Certificate in Songwriting & Guitar from Berkleemusic Online. I also taught guitar & songwriting at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop from 2014 to 2017, and now teach guitar lessons via Skype or Zoom. Additionally, I am the Founder and Facilitator of "Fierce! A Girls' Songwriting Workshop with Nila Kay". Most recently, I have created several courses for you to learn how to play guitar and write a song! Here they are!
In June 2022, I graduated from Mitchell-Hamline School of Law. Check out my article about music licensing that was published in Mitchell-Hamline's Cybaris IP Law Journal! I am also happy to announce that I passed the Virginia bar exam and am now a licensed attorney!! 🤩
